Subject: MIST Update ... Duplicates mail some may have received

We're expecting another outstanding crowd
-- and a full house -- here in Indianapolis 
from 10am to 3pm on Saturday, July 13, 
at the Mid-Indiana MIST AtariFest VIII.  
(That's 10 to 3 Indianapolis/Chicago time,
or 11 to 4 Cincinnati/New York time EDT).

We also want to alert you that the house
may be truly and fully packed because 
of last-minute decisions by vendors and
user groups.  When our June 15 "discount date"
came and went, we had to decide to give up our
second ballroom (or risk a hefty loss).  So we 
are once again back in only one crowded room.  

But we expect it will be real cozy -- and busy but fun!

Atari Corp. has sent us a complete JAGUAR
to sweeten the pot ... along with a half-dozen
Jaguar games.  All will either be given away as
door prizes or offered for sale at auction.
More door prizes are to be awarded also.

Who's coming for sure?  Here is the list of those
who put checks in the mail.  Others have expressed
interest and may show up -- but we are rapidly 
running out of room:

  Toad Computers       Branch Always Software             ICD, Inc.
  SKWare One       Computer Direct with DirecT60    Computer Dungeon
  Current Notes                              It's All Relative
  Systems for Tomorrow                               chroMAGIC
                                                Crawly Crypt

Computer Direct will introduce the DirecT60, the world's fastest
TOS machine, and Brasoft will have its new Gemulator for laptops.

User groups who are signed up include:

    Toronto Atari Federation                          EAUG

    BL.A.ST.                                         ASCII

Admission tickets are the same $3 as in the past,
and entitle the buyer to a chance at the door prizes.

See you there: 

                   Best Western Waterfront Plaza Hotel,
                   US 136 (just west of I-465 and I-74) on northwest corner
                   of Indianapolis.

Here are a couple of personal items from popular vendors:

DAREK MIHOCKA of Branch Always Software  < >
told MIST he would be on hand with "Gemulator 96 and my new color
notebook PC...."

CHRIS KROWCHUCK, president of Computer Direct in Edmondton,
Alberta, checked in with this message about his new 68060 machine, the
DirecT60, and about his busy week getting ready to show at MIST:

From chris@compdirect.comSat Jul  6 15:34:40 1996
Date: Sat, 6 Jul 1996 10:18:16 -0600

It is official, the World's Fastest Atari Compatible Computer, DirecT60
will be making its premier North American appearance at MIST VIII.
We will need one table along with Kent Kordes' Systems for Tomorrow.

The last two weeks have been crazy, between getting DirecT60 ready and
trying to book flights etc.  I was able finally to book my flight on
Thursday, it will take me two days of travelling to get there!

I leave Edmonton on Thursday and arrive in St. Louis on Friday at 3:55pm,
unfortunately I have not been able to book a flight from St. Louis to
Indianapolis. I will have to rent a car and drive the four or five hours,
so I will be arriving late Friday night, but will be there. My return
flight leaves St. Louis on Sunday ... I will be tired after this show!

I am having T-Shirts made up with "Official Test Pilot for the World's
Fastest TOS Computer" on them.  I would like to give these to the show as
door prizes, the six lucky winners will be able to actually test drive the
DirecT60 and take home the T's.

Would anyone there be willing to loan or rent us a good quality VGA
monitor?  I can't carry one onto the plane...

I will have all of our product line at the show including: 
  -- MagiC
  -- MagiCMac
  -- NVDI
  -- Ease
  -- Kobold
  -- HD Driver
  -- FX Card etc.

Also premiering at MIST will be: 
  -- DA's Layout TC v6 
  -- Outside 3.40 
  -- In Touch 2
  -- Positive Image
  -- E-Copy
  -- Face Value 
  -- Plus a couple more surprises.

Upgrades will be available at the show, let users know that they can bring
their master disks and manuals and receive upgrades on the spot! ...

All the best,
                                       Chris J. Krowchuk
